Please note: Due to the health guidelines from the World Health Organization and our local government related to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) virus, our church council has decided that we need to suspend services and all church gatherings for the remainder of March. We are saddened by this and realize that gathering together in worship is a joyful time for all of us, but we find ourselves in uncertain times. We feel it is in the best interest of our church community and greater community if we do not risk spreading this virus. We are planning to video a shortened church service each week and post it on this website and on our church Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FCCSLC/). We also plan to announce joys and concerns, and you may send any joys or concerns to the church or Diane Forster Burke. We will reevaluate church service suspension at the end of March and update you as this situation unfolds.
Saturday, April 4th:
Garden of Grace Clean-up on April 4th from 9am to noon is still scheduled. We will practice Social Distancing and enjoy the fresh air.
Blood Drive - This is also still scheduled for April 4th. If you are interested in participating please contact Diane Forster-Burke to sign up.
Food Bank - The Food Bank work day will also be held on April 4th from 10am - noon. The guidelines are no one under the age of 12. No one over the age of 60. Also please no one that has been sick. If you have questions about this and want to join in please contact Scott Hansen.
In case you haven’t seen it ... Friendship Manor and First Congregational Church are mentioned in the 3rd paragraph of a Salt Lake Tribune news article: http://www.sltrib.com/news/2017/11/15/50-years-later-friendship-manor-remains-a-monument-to-how-faith-groups-can-work-together-to-serve-utahs-elderly/ (or click on the button below) 50 years later, Friendship Manor remains a monument to how faith groups can work together to serve Utah’s elderly. It was a 1961 chat between a Unitarian minister and a Westminster College professor that proved the genesis for Salt Lake City’s Friendship Manor retirement community.
